The police and crime commissioners (PCCs) for Thames Valley, Surrey and Sussex are expected to announce this week their preferred supplier for a new £120 million enterprise resource planning (ERP) system across the three forces.

The two-year contract is for a fully integrated IT suite supporting HR (including employee ‘self-service’, learning and development and payroll), finance (including fleet management and procurement) and duties management.

The forces say it is a “large-scale, business-critical programme with scope for a further 32 public sector organisations to procure the same selected solution over the course of the contract period”. They add that a “new single instance ERP is undoubtedly a key enabler to driving efficiencies within the back office as well as delivering significant operational benefits to frontline policing”.

The contract is for a replacement for an existing Oracle ERP system in Surrey Police, a SAP ERP system in Sussex Police and a non-integrated mixture of Peoplesoft, Aptos, WCN Recruitment and Capita DMS in Thames Valley Police. The three forces want the shared ERP platform to support more than 18,000 self-service users across their operations.

The tender, which closed last September, specified an “advanced user interface to enable operational staff to access key functionality easily”, “mobile access for users to support self-service, including clock-in and clock-out”, and access to legacy data from existing systems.
